When Jessie Shimmer traveled to a nightmare underworld to save her lover, Cooper Marron, she gained magical powers . . . which soon seemed more like curses. Her beloved familiar, the ferret Pal, became a monster. Her enemies multiplied like demons. Worst of all, she hasn t found a moment of peace to be with the man she adores.
Now a switchblade-wielding demigoddess commanding a private hell stocked with suffering innocents is after her. The blademistress vengeance sends Jessie and Pal on a dark journey through strange, perilous realms. Their quest for salvation will push her newfound abilities and her relationship with Cooper to the breaking point . . . and beyond.
